Psalm 37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a green bay tree. 36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: Yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
People who do not love God can enjoy only temporary success. They can claw their way to the top but they will never last. Sooner or later they will die and it will all be over.
We, however, have a promise that we will last forever. We are saved. We have forever life. We can do lasting work that lives on long after us because we can serve and honor God with our lives..
Do not get too discouraged when you see bad people getting ahead. Remember that they will soon die. What they have now is all they will ever have. They ned God not themselves and what they can do. Your life counts more now and in the time to come also!
